Slurry seal project is under way
Streets in four different areas to be resurfaced
The City of Vacaville’s Public Works Department will begin its 2017 Slurry Seal Project starting Monday, July 17.
Slurry sealing of streets is a highly cost-effective type of preventive maintenance. The slurry seal is composed of asphaltic emulsion (oil and water) and coarse sand applied on top of the existing pavement surface at an average thickness of 1/8 to 1/4 inch.
A total of 639,432 square yards (30 miles) of City streets will be slurry sealed. The overall area is bounded by Farrell Road to the north, Nut Tree Road to the East, Alamo Drive to the south and City boundary to the west. Location maps are attached showing the four areas, and selected streets within those areas, that are included in this year’s slurry seal project.
